February, ready or not. Mostly not.

I’ve been unreasonably stressed out lately.  I feel rushed, out of time.  Writing has been going fairly well, though the longer it is categorized as ‘fairly well,’ the more certain I become that I’m going to fail, at least in a minor fall-off-my-bike-then-get-back-up kind of way.  That level of failure is a normal thing, but the amount of anxiety I feel over it is not.  Other stresses: my apartment is a mess, I haven’t been reading a satisfactory amount of fiction, and I really should be exercising more.  I think that about covers it.  I need to take a few deep breaths, prioritize, and not be so rigid about what needs to be done and when.
